Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan
Malcolm Dulaney and Sean Mosely
ShoNuff and FromTS
DJGreg and Potato58

And by the way... my new basketball player to watch for the 08 year is Devon Branch out of Aberdeen. Here is another kid, who plays for the publics and has some real skills, but is getting zero mention nationally. This kid can play ball. And of course I am gonna be watching to see how the Jordan Lee kid does at Loch Raven. Both kids can flat out play, and would be a steal for any D1 coach looking to get some unrecognized talent.

Just my thoughts.

Devon Branch is a very good player, but he can't stay eligible for the entire year.

If FromTS can shoot it, I'll get it to him!

DJ's top backcourt was one of my favorite to watch. Charm City Classic they gave it to Kareem Reid and St.Raymond's. Actually that team caused the travel rules to change locally because they had a national *****kicking tour that season, defeating 6 nationally ranked teams including Simon Gratz(twice) with Rasheed Wallace.

Mo Hatten and Damien Jenifer was #6 on my list. They should've won the the 4A that year but for some reason, the coach tried to freeze the ball too early and it cose them. Devon Branch is very good but grades have always been an issue with him. That's probably why there is no mention about him

BTW, Jenifer is now an assistant at Montrose Christian.

Branch has had problems staying eligible the last two years. Hopefully, his strong showing this summer will get him to realize that he has a chance to play in a decent D1 program if he get's his priorities in order.

Fatt Catt, you wouldn't happen to be from over east would you? Lake grad, maybe. Lake Clifton has had some talent! Gotta add Chester and Parris, only played one year together in high school, but along with Rudy they murdered AAU circuit with Cecil for years. They lost to Woodlawn in 4A region final on last second tip in.

Ben Harlee and Kenny McNeil, big tough guards that could shoot and defend, don't make'm like that anymore. That team was #5 in the country.

Wow... thats a shame. Maybe he'll read this post and fell the kick in his backside from my boot and hit the books, because he can play. Hit the books son!!! This your chance. You need some help get with your parents church or coaches. All you gotta do is ask, and then do the work.

How about Eric "EC" Carroll and Antwan "Truck" Wingo St. Frances

They gave Dunbar all they could handle down the dome during Craig Cromwell. The rain stopped one of the best game ever.

I couldn't tell you any of his teammates, but Goretti's Rodney Monroe made up one of the best backcourts on his own.

Marc Wilson and Pop Tubman were pretty darn good at CHC in the early 80s!
